After the controversy last week, Facebook went public apologies to the Prime Minister of Norway, Erna Solberg, having censored its publication with the picture ‘napalm girl’.

Solberg wrote the publication as a way to view the Facebook his mistake after erasing repeatedly publications from the Norwegian newspaper Aftenposten.

The apology came from own Sheryl Sandberg, COO of social network which granted that Solberg raised important questions as to how Facebook handles such situations. Sandberg admitted that Facebook “does not always get it right.”

A photograph taken in 1972 by Nick Hut shows a naked child, an image that has activated the Facebook algorithm. But Sandberg concedes that “sometimes [the historical relevance] outweighs the importance of maintaining nudity outside of Facebook,” pointed out the executive of the social network according to the Associated Press.
